I don't think it has much to do with CZE. They are doing a good job, or at least trying new interesting things. The DC sets were dogs for Rittenhouse too.

But Invasion was a brand new set, not a reprint of the 1962 set. I'm all for new sets with new stories and artwork. A reprint of the 1962 set in Chrome will be better saved for a much later date.
